Try a Van Gieson's stain. To remove the yellow picric acid staining,
rinse the slides in water before DC&M.
Depending on choice of dye, you can get red, blue and even green
collagen staining.

Good Morning Everyone,

I am looking for a stain for Collagen without a background stain.  I
have tried the Aniline blue from the Masson's Trichrome with
unsatisfactory results.
